Kaufman will work with editor-in-chief Tim Wilson and publisher Ronald Lindeboom to expand all content aspects of the publication, which has a circulation of just under 120,000. Per today’s release:

”Fifteen years ago, when we began building support communities for media professionals on the web, Debra was already writing many of my favorite articles in the largest and most respected trades,” says CEO Lindeboom. “She was and is one of the best journalists in this field, and to have her as one of the Creative COW Team is a testament to how far Creative COW has come over the years.”
